about campaign finance, and they took place in a world where someone like bob dole was the republican leader. and he was interested in making sure republicans didn't get a bad deal, but he was not opposed to the idea of reform or legislation. in today's world with mitch mcconnell as the senate leader, you know, he has spent years opposing legislation in this area and seeking to shut down the regulation we have. it is at least partially because of senator, maybe largely because of senator mcconnell that we have an sec that is deadlocked 3-3 and unable to take any action because it takes four votes. talk about a super majority requirement, a two-thirds requirement for the sec to do anything, so we shouldn't be surprised they don't. having said that, i think there really is a change on the way congress looks at this on partisan lines. i still hold out hope that after the election in a new congress they will at least take a look at the disclosure side because there the supreme court was crystal clear in citizens united 8-1, the one part the minority joined in, saying that disclosure of al

the record. buffets bob, you know, i wouldn't have won with just doing social media. we won the election because we paired new forms of communication with voters and more traditional forms which is door knocking. for folks to meet me face to face and have a conversation with the living room or the cichen about the issues facing them and their family. that's what put me over the finish line. we have 89-year-old saying they lived here for the entire life and not once has the mare mayor knock on the door. it is the most important thing. you target the voters and you know how many votes you need to win. you get the voters out to vote. but at the same time, you know, i think why to piggy back on the door knocking with the social media thousands of people being able to read a post or opinion was important and to switch it over to governing it's become important. what we have been able to do as mayor we haven't been able to do. we have checks and balances and city council or the school committee, and so, you know, oftentimes whether there's an important issue you go to the city council chamber
